Update issued on Stoke City loanee’s potential Potters future

Published

on

Stoke City could extend goalkeeper Angus Gunn’s loan deal from Southampton for a further season, although the Saints do have the option to cancel the deal, a report from The Athletic has revealed.

Gunn joined the Potters on a season-long loan deal from Southampton back in the summer transfer window, having fallen down the pecking order at St Mary’s.

The goalkeeper has since gone on to make 14 appearances in all competitions for the Potters, and it now seems as though he could remain with the Championship club beyond the end of this season.

According to this latest report, Stoke do have the option to extend Gunn’s loan deal from Southampton by a further 12 months, which could ensure that he stays at the Bet365 Stadium until the end of next season.

However, it is also thought that Southampton do have the option to cancel Gunn’s loan deal with Stoke, if they receive a better offer for the 25-year-old.

As things stand, there still just over two years remaining on Gunn’s contract with Southampton, securing his future at the club until the end of the 2022/23 season.

How many times have the club won the FA Cup?

Since joining the Saints from Manchester City in 2018, Gunn has made 30 appearances in all competitions for his parent club.

The Verdict

This is certainly an intriguing prospect for Stoke to consider.

Gunn has, like a number of the Potters’ other ‘keepers, struggled with injuries at times this season, meaning it has been hard for him to make an impression at times.

However, given he was brought in as cover himself for the likes of Adam Davies, you do wonder whether Stoke might actually need him for next season, given Davies is now fit and available again.

As a result, it does seem as though a decision over Gunn’s future may not be made for some time until while Stoke decide who to go with as their number one beyond the end of this season, meaning the Southampton man may need to keep his options open here.
